this week, the diplomatic stunner of the year so far. a meeting by the basketball court with kim jong-un. no american gets in to see the north korean ruler. not even, say, google founder eric schmidt, whose visit was not well regarded by the u.s. government. >> we don't think the timing of this is particularly helpful. >> reporter: but maybe that's because schmidt was never an nba star. while one of the known things about the secretive kim's private life, from his days as a student at a swiss boarding school, is that he was an nba nut, especially big on rodman's old team, the bulls. and when "vice magazine" pitched north korea on bringing over rodman and some harlem globetrotters to do some exhibition play for its new hbo show, it was, "sure, come on in." and so, dennis rodman is there among the uniformly attired, stiff-faced north korean elite. the nba star, as known for his hair and for his flamboyant outfits, as for his hook shot. the hall of famer known as "the worm" has taken a shot at reality television. and some high profile romances. toning it down a little bit over there, the wo

been. it's a journalist's dream to be able to meet kim jong-un face-to-face. many diplomats would fight for that chance as well. and here dennis rodman is the first american ever to meet face-to-face with him. what do you make of it? >> i don't. i just don't. i'm so thoroughly embarrassed for us, so thoroughly embarrassed for north korea, so thoroughly embarrassed about this conversation. because it's not really talking about anything serious. this is like a publicity stunt. i grew up in detroit. i loved dennis rodman the basketball player. and i think anyone who played with him would say he's one of the best basketball players they played with. he's in the hall of fame. but structuring a sunday morning around his trip to north korea in conjunction with international politics? it's absolutely ridiculous. >> anna, what do you think the point was of this trips, besides shooting an hbo documentary. >> i think it was pointless. i think there was no point. i'm absolutely with lz on this one. it's all i can do to keep my eyes from rolling to the back of my head to be discussing this. frankly,

jong-un threatened to attack the u.s. for military exercises including b-2 bombers. breakshei do not think war out. if it does, the north will fall. why would they start a war to kill the same race. >> others say the threats should not be taken at face value. this is kim getting popularity at home. >> it is regime security. this is to bolster the new leader. it comes from the nuclear tests and the u.n. sanctions. >> north korea is known for being unpredictable. seoul is ready for the worst. >> a gunman has gone on a rampage in a pakistani school as the principal was killed and six children wounded. more from karachi. >> wounded school children taking to hospital. after they should have been celebrating -- celebrating a prize ceremony, -- >> two men came in on a motorbike. >> a man ran in firing and we were all engrossed in the magic show but as soon as the firing started there was a stampede. >> panicked relatives crowded around the primary school in a low-income neighborhood. >> as a result -- the school principal has died. >> the principle is reported to be a local member of th
. the country has put rocket units on standby, saying they are willing to fire in the south pacific. kim jong-un says the north is ready to settle accounts with the u.s. imperialists. the announcements came after the u.s. flew a pair of nuclear-capable stealth bombers over south korean air space. deployed from a base in missouri, they practiced dropping bombs on a south korean range, nearly 6,500 miles away. defense secretary chuck hagel says the pentagon has not taken the regime's threats lightly. >> is north korea more dangerous today? i think they're very provocative actions and belligerent tone has ratcheted up the danger. and we have to understand that reality. >> on tuesday, kim jong-un threatened to fire on guam, hawaii, and the u.s. mainland. and has recently put ground troops and artillery on standby. and pyongyang even released a propaganda video earlier this month showing the u.s. capitol and white house under attack. >>> the situation in syria grows worse by the day. mortar shells fell on the ca cafeteria at damascus university killing at least 15 students and wounding at least 20 mo
greeted their leader kim jong-un during his made for tv inspection tour of military border facilities. kim wants the world to see this as he has dramatically stepped up his dangerous rhetoric. he's even threatening a nuclear threat as he faces tough u.n. sanctions for the nuclear test. the obama administration isn't backing down. >> we're also going to continue to increase the pressure if they don't make the right choice. >> reporter: on his way to afghanistan, defense secretary chuck hagel made clear how closely the u.s. was watching. >> the united states of america and our allies are prepared to deal with any threat. >> cnn has learned the u.s. has recently stepped up surveillance using aircraft, radars, and satellites already nearby. military officials say so far there are no signs of unusual military moves by the north. but there is a disturbing new weapons program, the kn-08. u.s. officials say this missile, shown in a north korea military parade last year, is now undergoing engine testing. it's a three-stage ballistic missile with a potential 3,000 mile range. that's not as far as th

comments from commentsun as he visits this army unit -- comments from kim jong un. the language he used and the specific nature. he told the troops stationed that once an order is issued, you should break the waste of the crazy enemies, totally cut their windpipes and show them clearly what a real war is like. very fiery rhetoric, even in the context of the kind of stuff coming out of north korea in recent days. he also told them precisely what to target -- radar posts, 130 meter rockets, 150 millimeter howitzers and missile should be targeted, showing how much appears to know about the military assets station. showing he is a strong military commander in the vein of his father, giving on the spot guidance. but i think some context as an order. he is not ordering the immediate destruction of the island. it is more how his troops should respond in the event of a conflict. i think that is how it is seen here in south korea. the defense millet -- defense spokesman refering to this as a psychological -- but more movements as north korea does expanse of military exercises scheduled to act --
committee. he said he's concerned about north korean leader kim jong-un. >> the rhetoric, while it is propaganda laced is also an indicator of their attitude and perhaps their intent. so far my part i am very concerned about what they might do and they're certainly -- if they so chose, could initiate a provocative action against the south. >> clapper said the central intelligence agency will increase surveillance in the region. >>> defense ministry officials in taiwan say china remains a military threat and hasn't ruled out using force against the island. they outlined their concerns in a new report and they say they're not yet ready to take part in military exchanges with their chinese counterparts. the defense report comes out once every four years. it notes taiwan's relations with china have improved since president jo took office in 2008 but the report says chinese leaders haven't given up on the option of using force against taiwan. it points out the chinese navy is already capable of blockading taiwan and stopping u.s. intervention. the report says u.s. authorities in beij
within the north korean leadership, and kim jong un may be trying to shore up popular support. >> we take a look at other stories making news around the world. >> china has named its new premier. missed that one. u.s. president barack obama says iran is about a year away from being able to build a nuclear bomb. obama told israeli tv that the u.s. is willing to use military force to prevent iran from getting the bomb if diplomacy fails. >> nearly 200,000 people have been killed in iraq since the u.s. invasion almost 10 years ago according to a new study. researchers in the u.s. say the cost of the war has been more than $2 trillion. >> on a very different note, we have a look at sports now. and then there were eight -- soccer teams, that is -- left in the champions league. the draw has just been made for the quarter finals. let's take a look. bundesliga champions dortmind. bayern munich will answer the chances. the fixtures will be played at the beginning of april. >> over in formula one, the world champion books read that to go into the new season. the german driver dominated the two prac
of kim jong-un among sparked alarm, and china, their ally, urged restraint. >> this serves the common interests of all parties and also responsibilities. we hope that relevant parties will work together in pushing for a turnaround of a tense situation. >> the north korean war talk has especially unsettled people in the south, but some see it as a bluff. taking akorea is strong stance, but i do not think they will get anywhere with this behavior. i think they have to come to the negotiation table for talks. doubt northexperts korea has the capability to hit targets on the u.s. mainland or pacific territories, but u.s. bases in south korea are within range. >> good friday ceremonies in rom where held for the first time by pope francis. they were joining him for the way of the cross which will, commemorating the final hours of jesus between his sentencing and crucifixion. many of the prayers focused on the plight of christians in the middle east and expressed hopes of peace. at st. peter's basilica, pope francis reminded worshipers of the suffering of christ. he underscored the message w
: i remember when kim the younger, kim jong-un, became the new leader. we didn't even have a picture that was less than five years old. but more importantly, who is pulling his strings? do we know? >> the danger is that the hardline elements of the north korean military is -- he has an uncle that is not very pro engagement, pro u.s. the danger is that they're pulling his strengths and he is allowing them to do that. what i do think is happening is kim jong-un and his people think he has to strengthen himself because he is so young and inexperienced with his own people. so, maybe a lot of this bluster is to show his own people he is in charge, that the missile launch was successful. the one they did a couple of months ago. but it's amazing what we don't know about this guy, and this is why i think it's important that somehow down the line we engage him with diplomacy, but backed up with a few sticks. like the chinese could help more than they're helpings. >> shepard: the south koreans ended the crease fire that put the war on hold. how concerned are the south koreans about this guy? >

[chanting] that i'm told translates to death to america. echo reports north korean state television which quoted the dictator as saying his missiles are ready to settle accounts with the united states. he also reportedly signed orders placing his military forces on stand by. all of this comes one day after american stealth bombers flew over south korea, dropping dummy bombs as part of a training exercise. and as a reminder of the overwhelming peter of the u.s. military. obviously little kim, kim the younger has to know that launching rockets at the united states would be suicide. but the concern is that he might have no choice. ju
's ruling elite who have done so much harm to the people of north korea. we must go after kim jong un's illicit activities like we went of after organized crime in the united states; identify the network, interdict shipments and disrupt the flow of money. this would sever a key subsidy for north korea's weapons of mass destruction program. for only when the north korean leadership realizes that its criminal activities are untenable do prospects for peace and security in northeast asia improve. i will now turn to our ranking member, eliot engel of new york, for his opening comments. >> well, thank you very much, mr. chairman, and i'd like to thank you for calling this timely hearing and for your leadership in addressing the north korean threat. i would also like to say publicly that it was a privilege to travel to the region with you earlier this year to discuss north korea, with top leaders in seoul, tokyo and beijing. the recent nuclear test conducted by the north was a dangerous provocation that raised tensions in northeast asia. it reinforces the fact that pyongyang poses a serious
